Alert Hidden Falls Ski Trail Feedback

In response to the increased demand for outdoor recreation this season Parks staff have groomed a pilot x-country ski trail at the Hidden Falls Regional Park.  The trail is 4.5 km and includes both a skate deck and classic tracks, which is accessed via the park’s north entrance on Mississippi River Blvd and Magoffin Ave.  The trail meanders southeast along the Mississippi River with a turnaround just past the Highway 5 bridge.  In an effort to not displace walkers a 2.5 km walking path is rolled with new snowfalls.  The walking path is accessed from the same north park entrance and meanders north along the Mississippi River.  Enjoy the views!  

We value your feedback on this pilot project and/or the existing cross country trails at the Como, Highland, and Phalen courses.  Please share your thoughts with us at:  ParksWinterSki@ci.stpaul.mn.us

Groomed cross country ski trails are available at the Como Golf Course, Highland 9 Golf Course, and Phalen Golf Course. It is free to cross country ski with your own equipment on Saint Paul Parks and Recreation ski trails and no pass is required. See below for trail conditions.
